Re: What force turns a twintip?

It's a simple force induced by more drag caused by foot pressure on one side of the board as the board planes over the surface of the water (which is static to all intents and purposes) Exactly the same as most board sports, snowboards on snow, windsurf boards, surf boards etc.

Oh Joy!

So, can we stand the style police down then?

Will this mean kiting related interwebery bandwidth will be alleviated?

People are eager to get their gear in March-April... should I wait for the Core or get the Duotone that came out last October or December? There are benefits to leaks.

Re: Eye saw the 2019 XR6 today

So will it ave the Eye of Horus or was that just a fun photoshop experiment for Shavethewhales? Very unlikely, it was just an Epic retard tools wind up just to try and stir up the girls in the US..
